Contributing to design, our self-interlocking system can provide a monolithic step & repeat method of installation that allows anyone to stagger the products interlocking joints anywhere as if you were installing “brickwork”, commonly known as a “staggered bond” or “running bond” method of installation. This technological development acts as a backup to resist product-to-product separation, curling, peeling and most importantly vandalism. These patented systems, along with the sheer size, weight and durability of our product allows architects, engineers, designers, municipalities, building owners and operators to truly set the standard by which all others are measured.  

Size does matter in this case as it allows installers to install almost twice the square footage per man hour then the conventional square tiles, a savings that is unmatched in the industry today. Additionally vandalism is significantly reduced as our products will weight 40% more (per unit) due to its (overall) expanded size.

The patented C-shaped self-interlocking design is built directly into the product itself, It locks tightly together thanks to the supporting “back-wall”, which prohibits unnecessary separation, curling, pealing, shifting and wind up-lift. It is installed with our specially formulated glue/adhesive, while still providing unlimited access to sub-base materials for any maintenance related issues.
Our High Density Wear-Top is manufactured using recycled rubber in conjunction with a wide variety of slip resistant Pigments and/or blended EPDM/TPV material, coupled with our specially formulated binders. These high density, textured wear-top options are resilient and won’t crack, puncture or heave in the most hostile of weather conditions. This versatility is unmatched and provides year round use to  the end-user.

Furthermore, our patented, quadruple, self-interlocking design that is 40% larger in size with 60% more area to glue/adhere, eliminates the need for accessory items such as:fasteners, pins, clips, blocks, grids, etc., to hold the product together. This new technological advancement in design further strengthens the Pull Force of our products, both horizontally AND vertically, as it is locked into place in all directions, which in turn will truly provide the strongest locking mechanism along various parts of our products. In turn, prohibiting them from exposing itself to vertical up-lift and flight characteristics when installed on rooftops, a common design flaw found in a standard square tiles/mats/blocks/pavers on the market today. A characteristic that can only be found here.

Our twelve staggered interlocking joints:

  • Lock tightly together thanks to the new “Button-Lock™” Technology…………… movement when interlocked together.
  • Provide faster and easier drainage, allowing no foreign objects to harbor between the interlocks which are commonly found in competing products on the market today.
  • Helps prevent our products from shifting away from one another – a necessity in active, “common” areas.
  • Eliminates future problems such as expansion and contraction which may encourage wind up-lift.
  • Allow owners of our products to unlock the tabs in order to remove a damaged product, repair a substrate/roof, or relocate a surfacing/flooring area if necessary.
  • When loose laid pavers are interlocked over the roofing membrane, it offers superior protection without limiting the accessibility to the membrane. This versatility is unmatched and decreases the repair expenses to the consumer allowing, for many years of hassle-free use and enjoyment.

Unlike other products on the market that require glue to be applied after it is installed (which only provides a butt-to-butt adhesion), Unity’s products allow for glue to be applied during the installation process. This revolutionary technology allows glue to be applied inside the self-interlocking joint and on top for a free-flowing adhesion throughout the self-interlocking system, including the back wall as seen here, providing FIVE layers of protection.

Bolt Down:

Another patented feature that we have to offer is the BOLT-DOWN capabilities of our products. This unique system is found within the male portion of our self-interlocking joints to provide added strength and security in those high vandal areas of play. It is counter-sunk and laboratory tested to avoid any “hard-spots” within the product itself. It is capable of being placed under the most extreme environmental conditions and/or usage as it has been truly tested.

Up to twelve bolts can be used across various portions of the male interlocking joints to ensure that vandalism, nor severe weather, will be tolerated. Such field testing was put to the challenge during Hurricane Sandy, where 6 feet of salt water and debris had buried our rubber tiles/mats/blocks in several playgrounds across the east coast for several days only to come up unscathed with no issues of up-lift, separation, curling, peeling and/or vandalism what so ever. Images of these project can be found on our “Component Items” page under “Anchor-Bolts”.
